Neurofeedback Therapy Helps
Substance Use Disorders are viewed as primary, chronic diseases of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by other behaviors.
Struggle with recovery?
People who struggle with recovery often begin or continue using because they have underlying, or co-occurring symptoms related to mental stress, negative moods, trauma-related symptoms or post trauma. Continued use also exacerbates the symptoms of these conditions. This can make remaining abstinent very difficult.
How Neurofeedback can help
Studies have shown that abstinence rates can be improved using Neurofeedback, making Neurofeedback a modality that both compliments and enhances the efficacy of recovery programs for substance use disorders. Neurofeedback retrains the brain in a way that improves abstinence and compliments other recovery programs.
